Replacement Parts Buying Guide
Buying car replacement parts takes some careful consideration and, let's face it, a little bit of cash . Almost any part on a vehicle can be replaced, but depending on the car make and year, you might want to consider whether you want to replace the part at all. If you have a small dent on your wing , you may be able to take it to a mechanic for repairs rather than get a new part entirely. For something like a carburettor , which is typically an expensive part, you should think about whether the new part will cost more than the car itself. If your car is 12-15 years or older, you may want to buy a new vehicle if you have the means to do so rather than replace parts.
Parts can be purchased new or used, and there are advantages to both. New parts may be more expensive, and in some cases, more trustworthy, but if you know a little bit about buying used car parts (see article at bottom of page) this could save you money and, in the long run, be better for the environment .
Also, in the future, you may want to consider car insurance . This could help cover car repairs should you become involved in an accident and are unable to cover the costs yourself.
